COMPARED TO METHADONE, BUPRENORPHINE MAY BE SAFER, BUT IT AIN’T CHEAPER OR LESS IN DEMAND (ILLICIT)

According to a BBC news source (10/12/05) it's claimed that on the streets of the Republic of Georgia 800 buprenorphine tablets (no clue as to dose) are valued at $80,000(US). Wow! One can only wonder how long a "pilot" buprenorphine study will survive in Georgia or other nations of the region. RGN

Hey, you have a great blog here! I'm definitely going to bookmark you!

I have a drug addiction treatment site/blog. It pretty much covers addiction treatment and prescription drug abuse related stuff.

Come and check it out if you get time :-)

Thanks for the kind words. I did check out your blog and look forward to spending more time with it. For starters - Thai detox reports: 30-plus years ago (!)
there was a monk, who provided treatment for ten days: five
for "treatment" consisting of purging through every orifice of the body - laxatives, emetics,
sweating, you name it. Some died of potassium depletion during the process. Those who survived spent another 5 days lying on their backs recuperating. The monk insisted there was zero relapse rate - which he acknowledged, somewhat sheepishly, might be in part due to his iron-clad rule that no one ever, under any circumstances, may come back for a second treatment.

We should consider linking our sites - our website is www.opiateaddictionrx.info.
